Less a performance-oriented event than a celebration of childhood reading, this inaugural fest — sponsored by the mighty Tattered Cover book stores — zeroes in on middle grade books and authors, but subsequent years will include picture books, according to organizers. With its partners at OMG BookFest! this free gathering brings games, activities, readings and meetings to the Tattered Cover on East Colfax Avenue. Authors include David Bowles, Julia DeVillers, Stuart Gibbs, Shannon Hale, Varian Johnson, Sarah Mlynowski, Brandon Mull, Lauren Myracle, Courtney Sheinmel and many others. May 19, tatteredcover.com.

School review Ashley Elementary School (1914 Syracuse Street)
Ashley Elementary School (1914 Syracuse Street) Comment
Moving in always a struggle, doing it in the middle of the school year is even worse. The entire staff has been wonderful with the transition. We couldn't have hoped for a better place. They are loving, supportive, nonjudgemental, and understanding of challenges.
Here are three images from The Yucca, taken before 1947. Left to right those pictured are: Frank D. A. Clark, Frances Steele, James C (Torchy) Steele, Joseph C. Steele, and Margaret C. Clark. All in the photo are deceased. Joe Steele was my dad. Frances was his first wife, and Torchy, their son. (courtesy Larry Steele)
